[…] In short, Roots is a collaborative inviting audio-visual experience where users use their fingers to create branching vines that trigger sounds. Using multi-touch finger interaction and fiducials (tangible objects), the user(s) are able to make music either completely generatively, semi-random by setting up generative systems/rules for the environment, or completely trigger-based following finger movement.

why is there no sound from roots in the videos? that would be nice to hear as well as see :)
interesting concept btw!

The videos above were promotional and pre-releases before the intended premier of Roots at Minitek Festival 2008 in New York. We kept the audio a surprise until the festival, however, do to logistical mixups in shipping (one of our packages getting stuck at UPS! ) we were unable to premier Roots at minitek… we do have a video on our vimeo page (vimeo.com/bricktable) titled Musical Applications for Multi-Touch interfaces which has a few short clips of Roots with audio!

it’s like “reactable” but more cool

well! thank you for your generous compliments… We would just like to say none of what we are doing would be possible if NOT for the reactable and that we love the reactable–the fact that it does what it does so well has allowed us to explore other avenues and approaches to musical touch/tangible interfaces

that spaces app for your mt is fantastic. i’m impressed with how smooth it is on the audio synthesis. does it utilize any preexisting samples, or are they generated?
scape said this on December 5, 2008 at 1:06 pm | Reply
All of the Spaces audio / synthesis is done in real-time. We are using a variety of *modified* Reaktor ensembles and effects. In fact, all but one of the instruments we control in the Spaces video are non-sampled based. The one instrument that does use a sample is the percussive/clicky sound you hear in the video– however, the original sample is heavily mangled, granularized and morphed in other ways, in realtime by the performer. The computer runs pretty hot, however, we’ve been running all of this, AND our Processing GUI / data parser, and our tracking software all run off 1 15″ MacBook Pro (last generation) with no problems.

Is the react-table an existing technology, or did you guys do all this from scratch? Is it true touch-sensitive surface or video parsing? Nice work. I look forward to a world-class series of table slams….
